My head just went boom

From the Yahoo page:

No more ‘ho ho ho’:
Santas are told to say “ha ha ha” instead of “ho ho ho” so they don’t offend women.

Are you :censor: kidding me?

Seriously, I don’t even have the words to express how much this pisses me off.

It just…:rant:

Plus, wouldn’t this only be offensive if you considered yourself a “ho”? Did some woman stand up and say “I’m a ho, and Santa’s making me feel bad about myself”?

This just…:rant: :censor: :rant: :censor:

It’s bad enough I’m going Dunkin Donuts-free, but if people start :censor: up Christmas, I’m going to get upset. Seriously.

    That sounds like the time our city tried to make the Christmas tree at City Hall become the Holiday Tree so as not to offend anyone. Apparently no one cared except the people who wanted to all it a Christmas Tree. It’s a Christmas Tree!! :roll: Give me a break.

    Some people have to ruin everything. I get politically correct, but leave Santa alone. And if someone is a ‘ho – maybe they have bigger things to think about than whether or not Santa is dissing them. Sheesh. Get a grip.:eyebrow:

    Maybe Mrs. Claus is a ho. What do we really think she and the elves do ALL night when Santa’s driving his sleigh all around the world?

    What’s the Onion? No, seriously, it was on Yahoo—the main page always has like four different headlines to choose from, and this was one of them.

    So, in honor of this news bit, I’ve chosen my holiday ringtone. (Yes, I’m one of THOSE people you always want to strangle in Walmart.)

    Santa baby…slip a sable under the tree…for me…

    So, Nora, what you’re saying is that when Santa says Ho, Ho, Ho, he’s counting all the times Mrs. Claus and each of the elves……

    shocking. simply shocking.
